First time user to Linux Mint, and I'm loving everything about it! I've tried using other distros, but this was the easiest to use and kinda configure for a n00b like me.
Anyway, I need help totally disabling the Synaptic touchpad on the notebook. I set it so that it won't register a click when I tap on it, but when I type, it will move all over the place...again making the experience annoying when I need to type, like posting this thread. I usually use a USB mouse for whatever...I just don't like using the touchpad at all.
I am kinda getting the hang of Terminal, but a step by step would be helpful and appreciated if I have to go into that to change settings.
